State Supreme Court justices reacted with measured skepticism Thursday to a petition from Connecituct’s bipartisan redistricting panel for more time to complete work on a map of congressional voting districts. 

During a brief morning hearing, Assistant Attorney General Maura Murphy Osborne asked the justices to grant the nine-member Reapportionment Commission’s request to continue working on its new congressional map until Dec. 21. 

The issue came under the court’s jurisdiction on Nov. 30, when the panel missed its deadline to complete work on adjusting Connecticut’s voting districts to reflect population changes recorded by the once-in-a-decade census survey.
